Song of the Day!
Oh this song tickles me every day i hear it. All i can think of is the revolution it caused including a "response song".
TLC - No Scrubs
I was in university when this song hit. And it caused so much uproar worldwide. The men i knew were soooo mad at the guts TLC had to sing about thins including some of the scrubs. The video was all futuristic with silver banks and chunky boots and a swing. Remember that? Then some group came up with the song "No Pigeons" as a comeback to it. What was the name of that group again? Sticky something?
This song really got me thinking...Some guys were and still are scrubs. Back in the day, i remember the toasters coming to my house. Only one guy was the toaster but he would come with friends that all squeezed into a car. Why?
Today, the scrubs are on a different level. They never have credit and so they have become experts at flashing or calling from business centers or other people's phones. They are supported by their partners: be it sending them credit, paying for all their meals etc....
Anyway, here's to TLC for making us laugh and dance.
